Resource Information

Depositor Comments

Plasmid pIRES-EGFP-puro was constructed containing the Phcmv promoter followed by unique restriction sites (NheI, XhoI, and SacI) for insertion of genes. Downstream, an IRES from the encephalomyocarditis virus directs the translation of EGFP-puro from the same mRNA.

Addgene's sequencing results found differences compared to the depositing lab's sequence in the 3' region of the puro resistance marker. The resulting protein sequence matches NCBI WP_055528321.1 and should be functional.
